By now, you’ve probably at least heard of Karen Klein, the elderly bus monitor who was berated by a group of teenage thugs on the school bus for no reason whatsoever. The 68-year old granny in the YouTube video, titled “Making the Bus Monitor Cry,” which has almost 5-million views, looks like any one of our grandmas and is at the blunt end of a verbal attack by a group of punks without morals or compassion.
The ten-minute video that was uploaded by one of the heathens was very hard for me to watch as Mrs. Klein was visibly crying and trying to ignore the boys’ relentless attacks. They called her names such as fatass, poor, ugly, bitch and even made reference to her family killing themselves to get away from her. Karen Klein’s response: “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all.” She may not be the best bus monitor in the world, since what these kids need is a Drill Instructor to slap them around, but Karen Klein deserves an award for having the patience of a saint and the courage to sit there and take the attacks.
There is a lack of moral fiber in America these days and it’s due to the fact that parents let their kids do and say whatever they want without repercussions nor consequences. Personal responsibility and respect for one’s elders has fallen to the wayside to a gimme-gimme culture of soulless good-for-nothing derelicts. All of the kids on the bus (including those who stayed silent during the ordeal) deserve an ass-whooping and a tall glass of reality.
A group of fundraisers have started raising money on behalf of Karen Klein, the bus monitor who’s yearly salary to babysit the hell spawns at Athena Middle School in Greece, New York, is a modest $15,506. This Karen Klein fundraiser in particular set a goal of $5,000 to help Mrs. Klein get a vacation. Their total is now almost $600,000 in donations from people wanting to help her.
